Threshold Concepts: Rachel Wells

Rachel reflects on the barriers to learning challenging language and use of knowledge in the stressful profession of Midwifery. She discusses the use of Experiential Learning in a safe environment in developing student progress over Thresholds to enable Transformative learning. She reflects on using simulations of birthing scenarios (with a computer generated model). This pedagogic approach of enquiry based learning with peer to peer feedback , group work and reflection within a supported environment leads to deep understanding which is necessary to tackle the numerous possibilities in the real world of midwifery.
